The Geneva Motor Show kicks off in early March, and we already know which shiny new vehicle we'll be looking out for.
GFG Style recently teased a 'Hyper SUV' which will also be an EV, because why not! Best of all - it's called Kangaroo.
A few years back, the Engineering Director of Ford had the police show up at his house. Fortunately, this wasn't the kind of incident that would afford him a Netflix True Crime original. No, his neighbours simply found his Mustang Shelby to be too loud. This brush with the law got himself and fellow Mustang engineers to thinking — there had to be a way to make the exhaust quieter in the next generation of Ponies. There was, and they called it Quiet Mode. But for Mustang fans out there who appreciate the roar of the engine jumping to life, that hasn't been stripped out. In fact, Aussies in particular wanted the 2018 Mustangs to be louder. Suffice to say, it's been a complicated journey.
We don't know a whole lot about it yet, and even the image is extremely conceptual. However, we do know that it's a four-wheel drive with a top speed of 250km/h, and that it can go from zero to 100 in 3.5-seconds.
Interestingly, GFG Style is claiming that it will be able to hit those speeds both on and off-road.
It's also a two-seater, which I find to be weird and counter-intuitive for an SUV, but okay.
For anyone looking for the Aussie link, there doesn't seem to be much of one. Kangaroo was created by Italian designer Fabrizio Giugiaro and the car certainly hasn't set-paws on Australian soil. We're thinking that it may harken back to the colour, speed and all-terrain aspect of the vehicle. After all, Australia has a diverse and often rough landscape.
Despite the lack of details or real imagery, the Kangeroo will apparently be driveable right after being unveiled in Geneva. We'll let you know once we have more details.
